D.C. Heath published both a Larson 5th edition and an alternate 5th edition. From what I understand, the primary difference between the two is the order of the topics (e.g. trig deriviatives and integrals are treated in a late chapter rather than being included in the chapters for derivatives and integrals). I use the alternate 5th edition because it's the one I "inherited" when I started teaching calculus 4 years ago.
